ATHENS – Already moving to release terrorists and hardened criminals from jail, the ruling Radical Left SYRIZA government wants to get rid of a law which provides stiffer sentences for covering a face when committing robbery or breach of peace.

The law was introduced several years ago following a series of attacks in central Athens by self-styled anarchists wearing hoods and face masks.

SYRIZA has elements who want more lenient treatment of criminals and a core in the party accused of harboring sympathies for terrorists and anarchists.

They want the hoddie law scrapped and put an amendment on a bill currently being debated by MPs at committee level. They also want maximum security prisons eliminated, among a number of radical proposals which has led prosecutors to complain SYRIZA wants to empty the prisons wholesale.
